Will Anquan Boldin get a new contract?

Let me premise this by saying, I Love Anquan Boldin.

I Love his Fire, his tenacity, the way he trucks DB's like they're his B***h.

But as Cards fans we need to face the facts. The Whiz set this all up. Kurt Warner was signed to a 2 year extension and Boldins contract has 2 years left on it. 2 years to develop both Early Doucet and Steve Breaston and 2 years to ride Kurt Warner to his career death bed and start a Steeler-esque offense. As in, 2 headed running attack with 1 Pro-Bowl and 2 very capable WR's.

We have seen Matt Leinert this year. When he is comfortable, he runs the offense well. But, he will never be a gun slinger like Warner. Whisenhunt won't ask him to be. As he has done in the years since he got here, he will play to his most talented players' strengths. Warner will get the ball 68% of the time to keep Q and Fitz happy and 32% of the time will be spent developing a run game. When Leinert takes over, I suspect this will shift to a 55% percent run and 45% Pass (Primarily to Larry).

This question becomes, can we expect Warner to stay healthy another year (Maybe), will Q play out the last year of his contract quietly (NOPE), and is Leinert ready to be the starting QB in a more balanced offense (eh). If we win the Super Bowl I see Warner retiring. I have never heard a QB talk more about his long term (after football) health. On the same note, I think we could use Q as trade bait for a O Tackle and then use the rest of the money we have to resign the D (Dansby, Rolle, and possibly rework Dockett's contract cause he won't stay quiet this offseason either.

Sorry Hawk, felt the need to talk about the offseason. Especially with so many questions this weekend we have no control over.
